Whether you are talk­ing about Google Day­dream or lat­est An­droid in­stant apps, Google I/O 2016 con­fer­ence was re­volv­ing around the con­cepts of Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and Ma­chine Learn­ing. Tech geeks and press flooded the Shore­line Am­phithe­ater in Moun­tain View, Cal­i­for­nia, from 18th to 20th May to have the en­tic­ing, three­day ex­pe­ri­ence, Google I/O 2016.

With ev­ery decade, there comes a tech­nol­ogy that rev­o­lu­tion­izes and rules the whole decade. And with that in mind, Google’s new head Sun­dar Pichai is tak­ing steps to make Google fo­cused on the tech­nol­ogy of the decade - Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. Google has kept AI at the heart of each of its prod­ucts, whether it is an es­tab­lished one or is in­tro­duced re­cently dur­ing the I/O 2016 con­fer­ence.

When Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google 17 years ago, they had no clue that one day their com­pany will have such a great in­flu­ence in peo­ple’s lives; Google is al­most ubiq­ui­tous to­day. Back then, there were only 300 mil­lion peo­ple on­line, con­nect­ing through desk­top com­put­ers. And to­day, that num­ber has crossed 3 bil­lion, a ma­jor­ity of which are us­ing mo­bile de­vices to get in­for­ma­tion, stay in touch, get from point A to point B, and or­ga­nize their day. With Google’s mis­sion - to or­ga­nize the world’s in­for­ma­tion and make it ac­ces­si­ble uni­ver­sally - mo­bile de­vices have be­come the re­mote con­trol of our daily lives.

The an­nounce­ments that were done in Google I/O 2016 con­fer­ence of­fered an op­por­tu­nity to de­vel­op­ers to get a glimpse of the new­born ba­bies of one of the fa­vorite dar­lings of Sil­i­con Val­ley. Here are some im­por­tant an­nounce­ments, which may soon be­come a part of our day to day lives.
